From a Size 18 Divorcee to a Sexy Curvy Size 12/14 Newlywed

weightlossphiladelphiadietdoctorsCongratulations to Susan who dropped from a size 18 to a curvaceous size 12/14. First let me say that Susan gave us permission to tell her story and she actually insisted we tell her story in hopes of helping people in her same situation.

In our medical weight loss program people come to us to help them lose weight for so many different reasons. Some people may have to lose weight because of health reasons while others are looking to lose weight for some type of family or school reunion and then some are just looking to lose weight to fit into a bathing suit before their vacation.  

And for some losing weight can be a triumphant personal victory and such is the case with Susan. You see Susan was a happily married 57-year-old  woman with 3 children.  But as it turns out Susan’s husband was not quite as happy as she was and he left her for a much younger woman.

Financially Susan was left secure by her husband because he was a very successful businessman but emotionally she was totally devastated.  It took quite a bit of time for Susan’s friends to finally convince her to start dating, to get her life back.

And being good friends they set her up on lots of blind dates but sadly there was never a 2nd date. Finally Susan had enough and she decided it was time to do something about her situation.

She decided to find love again.

Susan’s first visit with us was not easy. She gave us every reason why the program was not going to work for her.  She also told us that she was never a skinny girl. She was never a size 4, she was never a size 6. But just like we tell all of our patients not everyone is meant to be a size 2, not everyone is meant to be a size 4 or even a size 10. You just have to be happy with yourself and be the best possible you that you could be. I explained to Susan that in our program we take into consideration your body type. And we try to help you appreciate the body that God gave you.

If you are a curvy lady be thankful for the curves that God gave you and if you are a skinny lady be thankful for the body that God gave you. Our program is all about appreciating yourself. 

While we do help people that must lose lots of weight we also help ladies (and men) that just need to  lose a tummy fat, thigh fat and maybe some arm fat and then just tone everything up with walking and maybe even some resistance training just using rubber bands that they sell in the stores that are inexpensive. So again our program is designed to help you be the best you. Our goal is to help you appreciate who you are and what you are. And as it turns out Susan also found a gentleman who definitely appreciated her curves.

In her first visit with us we explained to Susan that the appetite suppressant medications work extremely well at controlling your appetite and  we even  showed her little tricks to do if she did happen to be hungry especially late at night. Well Susan put her best effort into the program and now she is enjoying her honeymoon.

Here are a few of Susan’s favorite recipes from our weight loss program.

With our medical weight loss program most of our patients tell us that they are never really hungry because our appetite suppressant medications/weight loss pills work extremely well at curbing their appetite and cravings. But they do appreciate that they are able to eat delicious meals, snacks, treats and smoothies and still lose weight.

In fact the weight loss medications and all of our delicious recipes have made my personal weight loss from 247 pounds down to 185 pounds very easy and enjoyable. Personally I find it difficult to tell people that I am on a diet when I’m able to eat chocolate Chip Brownies and cheesecake and still lose weight LOL.

You will find these recipes on this website and also on our YouTube channel “Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia”. I have just uploaded our 275th recipe video to our YouTube channel. So not only do we give our patients what we consider the best weight loss medications possible but we also give you tons of recipes that will help you lose weight more quickly.

Chocolate Smoothie For Breakfast or Lunch*
2 tablespoons of Chia seeds
1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup of our Solutions4 chocolate protein powder
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 tablespoon of unsweetened cacao powder
1 – 2 packets of Stevia
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of ice
combine all of the ingredients into a blender and enjoy

Heavenly Chocolate Weight Loss Smoothie*
1/2 medium avocado
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk or any other unsweetened nondairy milk
1/4 cup of heavy cream
2 tablespoons of Chia seeds
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
one scoop of solutions for chocolate protein powder or a quarter cup of egg white protein powder (optional ingredients include drops of liquid Stevia to taste.)
Place all of these ingredients into a blender and pulse until nice and smooth. If you are feeling very chocolatey you can use a square of dark chocolate that’s at least 85% dark chocolate and break this into tiny pieces and mixed it in your smoothie.

Chocolate Muffins*
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of coconut oil or butter
1 tablespoon of xylitol
5 – 10 drops of liquid Stevia
1 tablespoon of raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons of almond flour
1 tablespoon of coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
(optional one square of 85% – 90% of dark chocolate)
Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat using a hand whisk. Then add the melted coconut oil or butter, xylitol, Stevia, cacao powder, coconut flour and almond flour, cinnamon, cream of tartar and baking soda. Mix everything well and pour the mixture into small ramekins. (break the square of dark chocolate into very tiny pieces and gently place them on top of the chocolate batter) then microwave for 60 – 90 seconds and you have a delicious low-carb chocolate muffin. Instead of using a microwave you can also bake them in an oven that is preheated 360°F for about 15 minutes. You can even top the muffin with full fat sour cream or whipped heavy cream. This recipe should make one muffin.

Now, first I am going to give you two awesome recipes for piecrust that are both low-carb and low sugar and then I will give you recipes for a yummy cheesecake, brownies and even a wonderful chocolate cake.

Almond Piecrust**
1 1/2 cups of almonds
1/4 cup of vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 cup of melted butter
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Using a food processor with the S-blade in place, grind almonds to a consistency similar to cornmeal. Add the protein powder and butter and pulse to combine everything. Then pour this into a pie plate and press firmly and evenly into place gently building it up around the sides. Bake this for approximately 12 – 15 minutes or until the edges are starting to brown lightly. Then remove from oven and let it cool.

Crisp Chocolate Piecrust**
1 1/2 cups of almonds
1/4 cup of Stevia
2 squares of bitter chocolate melted

Preheat your oven to 325°F. Using the S-blade of your food processor grind almonds until they are the texture of cornmeal. Add in the Splenda and pulse to combine everything. Pour in the melted chocolate and then the melted butter and run the processor until everything is evenly distributed. Make sure that everything is combined nicely together. Then at the protein powder and pulse again to mix everything together. We are then going to pour this mixture into a 10 inch pie plate that you have coated with nonstick cooking spray press firmly and evenly into place and bake for approximately 8 minute. Allow this to cool before filling.

Then add the melted chocolate and Splenda and blend everything again. The next step is the poor this mixture into the pre-baked pie crust. Place the cake on the top rack of the oven and place of flat pan of water on the bottom rack. Bake for approximately 40 – 45 minutes. Then let it cool and place it in your refrigerator to chill it well before
eating it. You can also serve this with heavy whipped cream.

Coffee Mocha Chocolate Chip Brownies**
1 cup of Stevia or xylitol
1/2 cup of chocolate whey protein powder
1/4 cup of almond meal
1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of instant coffee crystals
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of butter

1/4 cup of water
6 ounces of sugar-free chocolate chips or sugar-free dark chocolate bars chopped chocolate chip size – you can do this by hand or use a food processor.

Then add the butter and pulse until the butter is mixed in nicely with the dry ingredients. Pour everything into a bowl then mix in the eggs one at a time beating well with the whisk after each egg is added. Then beat in the water and finally stir in the chocolate chips or chopped up chocolate bars.
Next spray and 8 x 8 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray and spread the batter evenly in the pan. Bake this for approximately 15 – 20 minutes but be sure not to over bake. Let it cool and then cut into squares. You can cut this into 25 small Brownies.

Chocolate Cake**

1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
1 cup of cold water
Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a bowl combine your nuts, protein powder, cocoa, baking soda, Stevia and salt and stir them well together. You want to make sure that there were no lumps in this mixture. Then spray a 9 x 9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and place the mixture in it. Make two holes in this mixture for the coconut oil into one in the vinegar into the other in the water over top of the whole thing. Mix with the spoon or fork until everything is well combined and bake this for approximately 30 minutes.
